Former CIA agent Tracy Walder was on Deadline White House yesterday, and dropped a little bomb into the conversation about the security risks of Trump holding onto classified documents at Mar-A-Lago.

"In terms of retracing our steps, where Trump has been, i think we need to think about digital thefts as well," she said.

"We don't know what pictures were taken of the documents. we don't know what e-mails were sent of the documents. We don't know what text messages were sent of the documents, and to me, that's highly problematic, and I also started thinking a little bit about, you know, the time line of the documents, and when the archives, you know, first really approached trump, which was May-ish of 2021. And then we just have a few months later in october of 2021, which is when the CIA issued sort of that worldwide cable saying, you know, hey, do a better job of keeping your assets safe because we're noticing that they're being killed perhaps, and I just, I find the timing of that highly unusual.

"And also, you know, with the news breaking that the member of the Rothschild family who turned out to be a Russian spy was also at Mar-A-Lago in May of 2021 when we know those documents were there. This is highly problematic, and we have basically served up our sources and methods to our adversaries really on a silver platter. What he has done, I really kind of liken it sometimes to Edward Snowden in a way, by providing sources and methods to our adversaries."

Wallace said her mind is "blown by your filling out of the time line, going back to 2021, and let me just make sure I understand what you're saying. We know as the general public knows in May of 2021, the archives was trying to retrieve the documents that Trump took with them. We know from the New York Times that Trump packed them himself, they were working quietly. This was all secret until Trump started social truthing his -- the fact of the search. Talk again about what you've gone back and stitched together about what happened in October."

"So again, this is obviously just my hypothesis of putting together this time line, but now that we have the time line, you know, we know that the first request was made by the archives in May-ish of 2021, and we also know that what's now known to be a Russian spy but who charaded herself as the Rothschild family, was at Mar-A-Lago May 2021 and in and out for the rest of the year.

"And then in October of 2021, a worldwide cable went out, basically, from the CIA, letting their stations all over the world, really handlers, such as myself have to be more careful with our assets. We have to handle them better. and we have to really make their safety priority number one. that to me is a huge deal. And, you know, again, I'm just hypothesizing here, but I personally don't find it to be a coincidence."

Wow. If there was a formal identification of her as a Russian spy, I haven't found it.

But the fake Anna aka Inna Yashchyshyn was a con artist and grifter who had her fingers in a lot of pies, including a fake charity (so she would fit right in with the Trump family).

Adding an additional layer of intrigue, Yashchyshyn and her one-time business partner Valeriy Tarasenko have filed domestic violence injunctions against each other in South Florida. He claims she is a fraudster and predator who preyed on rich older men and abused his teenage daughter. She calls him a violent criminal who effectively held her hostage.

So is she a Russian spy? That implies she had a formal arrangement with Russia that would mean attracting attention to herself with various scams would be imprudent, to say the least. But would the Russians connect with someone with money problems who could get access to the classified documents in Mar-A-Lago? Of course they would.

Stay tuned. This story will only get more interesting.
